Teaching

I teach on the MSc in Clinical Trials and am co-organizer of the module Protocol Development.  I co-wrote material for this and several other modules. I have a Modular MA from the Institute of Education.

Research

I am a member of the Tropical Epidemiology Group and work largely on dengue, leishmaniasis, lymphatic filariasis and other parasitic and vector-borne diseases.

I previously worked at the Papua New Guinea Institute of Medical Research, and the Ahmadu Bello University in Kaduna, Nigeria (seconded from the Institute of Ophthalmology, London).

In 1998 I completed a PhD supervised by Bryan Grenfell in the Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge entitled 'Heterogeneity and the Epidemiology of Lymphatic Filariasis'. I also have a BA in Mathematics and a Diploma in Mathematical Statistics from the same university.
